Laboratory of Physical Problems of Monitoring of Agricultural Systems

The Laboratory of Physical Problems of Monitoring of Agricultural Systems was established in 2012 at the Faculty of Physics and Technology of Altai State University on the basis of an agreement between Altai State University and L.V. Kirensky Institute of Physics. The main activities of the laboratory are joint research, joint implementation of innovation activities in the scientific and educational fields and the provision of advanced training for specialists.

The main research areas of the laboratory are radio wave physics and the physical fundamentals of radio remote sensing. The laboratory carries out both theoretical studies of the propagation and scattering of electromagnetic waves, as well as experimental studies in the field of dielectric physics (in particular, the soils of the Altai Territory and the Arctic). Laboratory staff are involved in the creation and maintenance of a network of climate monitoring in the Altai Territory: soil-climatic hospitals in Poluyamki (Mikhailovsky district) and Pervomaisky (Mamontovsky district); meteorological stations in Druzhba (Zonal District) and on the basis of the Blue Cliff practice base (Charysh District).
Physics and technology students are actively involved in the research activities of the laboratory. Every year, students of the faculty pass industrial and research practice in the laboratory. From 2012 to 2015, 12 students defended qualifying papers, the topics of which are related to scientific problems solved in the laboratory.

The laboratory actively cooperates with Russian and foreign educational and scientific organizations, including: Altai State Agrarian University, Institute for Water and Environmental Problems of the SB RAS (Barnaul, Russia), Martin Luther University (Halle-Wittenberg, Germany), Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research (Falkenberg, Germany).

The main partner of the laboratory in research work is the laboratory of radiophysics, remote sensing of L.V. Kirensky Institute of Physics.
